Collins Wonder Colour Book

As with the Little Golden Books, the Cozy Corner book was printed in several foreign countries as well, although not under the Cozy Corner imprint. This is the English version, published by Collins. It is the same content, just slightly narrower.

The endpapers however are completely different.

And there is an additional page at the beginning with a clever bookplate motif (this copy apparently once belonged to a lovely English lass named Jennifer),

and another at the end with the copyright and printing information (a rarity in English books!)

It is unclear whether or not this new art is by Samuel Armstrong, but I doubt it.
